You're relatively new on here, but you'll hear some people from time to time use the term "OAT". It stands for "off axis torque", but put more simply means how smooth you can throw a disc. Those guys...

Honestly I think I play best somewhere in the middle. The trees help me focus on where I want to throw, but too narrow of a fairway and it gets tougher (obviously). My favorite kind of holes are...

I could be wrong, but it sounds like you've got a bit of overlap there. I wouldn't think you'd need the R-Pro Roc+ and the Champion Shark 3. So I would get rid of one of those. Also, I haven't thrown...

While yes, that is insanely impressive, it's also incredibly misleading. If you've seen any videos of the world record rollers, you know what I'm talking about. They are VERY wind assisted. The disc...

Not trying to start something, but grip lock definitely exists. I do however agree that quite often grip lock isn't the issue (good point by the way). Most of the time it's turning the shoulder too...

A couple simple tips I'd give to the OP if you're really interested in working on rollers is this. Large diameter, max weight, and stiff plastic. You want the disc to crush anything in its path. I'm...

I agree with you, but I would say my main reason for wanting a ball/disc golf course in my area would be for variety. In my area, most of the courses are short and technical. I definitely like that,...

That is interesting, and something I've never thought about. The cool thing is, I'm right handed/footed, but have always skated and snowboarded lefty. It always felt more natural to be positioned...

Unfortunately, no. A disc can't pass through the top of the chain assembly or the sides/bottom of the basket. Has to go in naturally and finish in the basket or chains. The only thing I don't...

See, I think if I arrived at a course like that, I'd probably just turn around and leave. A course in that bad of condition isn't worth it to me.
